August 2019: the newly opened Arcade Food Theatre at the bottom of the Centrepoint tower has a sibling stall, called Casita do Frango.
'Proper' Algarvian cuisine - the grilled, piri-piri seasoned 'chicken frango' familiar to many who holiday in Portugal - has arrived at London Bridge, along with regional charcuterie, octopus rice and pasteis de nata, plus natural Portuguese wines. The first floor dining space is a destination in itself, with vaulted ceilings, huge windows and a skylight.
Harden's survey result
“Grilled chicken is the centrepiece” (frango means chicken in Portuguese) and is done in three different ways: peri peri, lemon, and garlic-and-oregano – at this “buzzing”, airy and artfully converted yearling, not far from Borough Market. “Sides, salads and especially the custard tarts are of a very high standard too, and service, like the room, is bright and cheery”. A sibling stall is now open in Centre Point’s Arcade Food Theatre, see also.
Casa do Frango Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Posh nandos! Excellent chicken, excellent price, excellent side dishes and most of all the gazpacho! "
"Woeful. What a waste of a stunning venue. Usually limited menus = good quality and value. But here your tiny half chicken (large poussin really) is over salty, overcooked. The chips are no better. The sparkling wine choice like something you'd get at a Harvester in the 80s. The staff are either running around aimlessly, or wandering around listlessly. It's a terrible, hopeless place."
